The Classic 60's Collection - However, the differences between the Tempts and the Tops couldn't have been more stark. The Temptations had the good looks, the choreography and the silky smoothness, but also had constant turmoil, as over 20 singers including half a dozen lead singers would serve time as Tempts.
The Tops, on the other hand, were the working fan's group. Neither great dancers nor as suave as the Tempts, the Four Tops were nonetheless amazingly cohesive as a group and had something no other group did - the incomparable voice of lead singer Levi Stubbs.
They continued with ABC for the rest of the decade until the hits stopped coming and the record label folded. As the 80s arrived, the Four Tops found themselves without a record contract and facing irrelevancy in the fickled world of popular music.
Then unexpectedly they found a third life as a group, signing with Casablanca Records and releasing the smash hit, "When She Was My Girl," and the successful album Tonigh t. At Motown's 25th Anniversary special ina playful singing competition was set up between the Temptations and the Four Tops, with the groups poking fun and alternating songs, ultimately joining together for a medley of hits.
The act proved so popular that the two groups began a "Tempts vs. Tops" tour that has gone on intermittently for 20 years and has been seen by Keeper Of The Castle - Four Tops - Classic Sounds Of The Motor City (Volume Two) (CD) of fans. The Tops returned to Motown in the mids for two unsuccessful Keeper Of The Castle - Four Tops - Classic Sounds Of The Motor City (Volume Two) (CD) before signing with Arista in and releasing Indestructibl e, their final hit album, which included the song "Loco In Acapulco" from the soundtrack of Phil Collins' movie Buster.
Tragedy struck the group inas group member Lawrence Payton died of cancer. The remaining members continued as a threesome for awhile, then recruited former Temptation Theo Peoples to join the group. Sadly, in July of that year, Obie Benson died after a sudden flurry of physical ailments, including lung cancer. He was replaced by Lawrence Payton's son Roquel. Stubbs followed three years later, dying on October 17, Ina version of the group consisting of Fakir, Peoples, McNeir and Payton, began recording on Jenny Jenny Records the Tops' first non-holiday studio album in nearly two decades.
The first single, "East West" hit radio in late Summer, but the full album never materialized. The song was later included on a compilation put together by Detroit businessman Herb Strather called Motor City Hits.
With Fakir being the only remaining original member, the reconstituted Four Tops continue to perform around the US and the world.
In the end, the story of the Four Tops is one of group harmony, on and off the stage. And after 50 years, when fans reach out, the Four Tops are still there.
We welcome new lead singer Morris to the fold. Check him out in action in the video posted above. Soul Music Biographies, News and Reviews. Michael J. Leave a comment!
